Cooking Rocks Challenge: Week 10 - Absolutely Fabulous Five-Minute Fudge

Filed under: Preschoolers, Nutrition: Health, Development/Milestones: Babies, That's Entertainment

Only dessert could save Nol and me from our dinner fiasco in this week's installment of the Cooking Rocks Challenge. The obvious pick was Absolutely Fabulous Five-Minute Fudge. What could be better than chocolate fudge? In five minutes?

This recipe is easy peasy. Nol prepped the cake pan by covering the surface with softened butter while I started on the cooking since it required stove time. I mixed sweetened condensed milk with my new favorite - Nestle Toll House Swirl chips...this time semi-sweet chocolate and white chocolate. The recipe called for a mix of butterscotch chips and chocolate chips, but I'll never use butterscotch again so I opted for the swirls. I cooked this on the stove until the chips melted. While this was happening, Nol covered the leftover can of milk with plastic wrap and put it in the middle of the cake pan.

When the chips/milk mixture was thoroughly melted, I added nuts and raisins, then poured the mixture into the cake pan. We then let it chill in the refrigerator until the fudge was firm, then pulled the can out.

Calling it Five-Minute Fudge is misleading. It takes five minutes to make, but about 30 to fully chill.

Total prep and cooking time: 45 minutes, including the wait to eat the fudge.

The can in the center is not necessary - it's more for presentation. Next time we'll leave this step out.
